Job description


Great Expectations' mission is to revolutionize the speed and integrity of data collaboration. Our software platform, Great Expectations is the leading open source tool for data testing, documentation, and profiling. Data teams all over the world use Great Expectations to instrument and understand their data and machine learning pipelines.

At Great Expectations, keeping a closely integrated Product, Design and Engineering organization is a core part of our culture. While some team members specialize in writing code and others in using customer insights to solve customer pain points and others in designing compelling UI and UX or developing specs and requirements, everyone is here to ensure we build the right product. Everyone must have deep understanding and empathy for the customer, and a sense of product ownership. As a Product Manager, you will build a close collaborative peer relationship with Product Engineers and Designers.


We are looking for someone who will:


  • Become a go-to person within the team for understanding our users’ needs and wants by analyzing usage data, interviewing users and studying market landscape and trends for your products

  • Build and maintain the roadmap for an area of the product, making a case for features and prioritizing them based on their impact on the KPIs and other factors

  • Develop specs and requirements for features, synthesizing information from our open source community, customer success organization and product engineering team

  • Effectively partner with UX designers and product engineers to ship features

  • Use hard data, experience, and anecdotal evidence to plan action to improve metrics or achieve other product goals

  • Implement product led-learning to find the customer oxygen to feed the product fire

  • Be user centric

  • Clearly define what you want to measure
    • Quantitative, where possible

    • Observe and validate

    • Gather as much relevant data as possible

  • Be passionate to create simple, loveable solutions

  • Quickly demonstrate customer value, minimize the “time to wow”

  • Find the sticky spots, good (repeated use) and bad (abandonment)


Why join Great Expectations?   


Glad you asked! We offer…


  • A world class team, with deep roots in open source, cutting-edge software and data development backed by some of the best open source and data infrastructure investors in the industry: Index, CRV, and Root Ventures. We are actively cultivating a new cultural blend of excellent data engineering and AI-enabled technical workflows.

  • A fast-growing company with lots of opportunity for learning and personal growth.

  • A front-row seat to the rapid evolution of data science and engineering. Data work is going through a renaissance, and—as the leading provider of a key piece in the new technology ecosystem—Great Expectations is right in the middle of it.

  • A kind, curious, and open-minded company culture. We are always seeking ways to improve ourselves and our processes; we keep these conversations open to the whole team. We prioritize empowering our team members rather than a command and control hierarchy.

  • A distributed team with lots of flexibility around timing and individual work preferences. We currently have teammates in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. We’d love to add your state.

  • And of course, competitive compensation (base salary + equity package) with available Medical, Dental, Vision & 401K with 5% employer match.


The salary range for this role is $163,000-$227,000 plus equity. Our offers are made by taking into account the skill level, experience and location of the specific candidate. In addition to our compensation package, we offer a competitive suite of benefits.
